E.L.F.: Fur Free in More Ways Than One

Support beautiful brows and the Humane Society in one fell swoop when you purchase E.L.F.'s Professional Tweezer Set...and for only $5.

E.L.F. Professional Tweezers aren't those cheap, "off the shelf" tweezers, either. These are honest-to-goodness pro-quality. A nice, sharp, slanted edge....good weight; and they come in a cute, little custom-made, snap-close pouch.

Brow Grooming Tips
Eyebrows are usually the most neglected part of a person's face and yet they are the most important feature on a person's face. They tell people a lot about you. When they are properly tweezed or glued down, they help to balance facial features. They draw attention to the eyes like a picture frame for the eyes and they are never noticed. If they are improperly tweezed they draw attention to themselves. They give the face an unbalanced and can give the face a character from a comic book. Groom your eyebrows and you will look well polished.
  • Align a long handle brush with the side of the nose and the inside corner of the eye. This is where the brow should begin
  • Align brush with the edge of the nostril and the outside corner of the eye. This is where the brow should end.
  • Align your brush with the beginning and the end of both brows. The brow should begin and end on the same level.
  • Align your brush with the outside rim of your iris (the coloured part of your eye). This is where the arch should be.
  • The brow should be one thickness from beginning to end, tapering slightly at the end. Align your brush handle with the highest points of both brows to indicate this.
Fixing Problem Brows
  • Thick Brows are identified by the stray hairs that grow down into the crease area of the eye lid. This closes the space between the brow and the crease, consequently, making the eye appear smaller and closed.
  • Brows That Are Too Long are identified by the stray hairs that grow down the outer corner of the eyebrow. This creates the illusion of drooping eyes. It changes the whole face and creates a very sad or melancholy look. It also makes the eyes appear older.
  • One Brow Look or Unibrow can be identified by the stray hairs that grow across the bridge of the nose. This gives the illusion of having one eyebrow over two eyes. It creates a very stern, unpleasant and angry look. This also makes the eyes look close set.
  • Brows that have a rounded or too high of an arch. These can be identified by the excessive space from the crease to the brow. This creates a quizzical or a stunned appearance. It also gives the illusion of a permanent frown line and makes the eyes appear to be smaller.
